About Sayana Press Project:
The Sayana Press Project is funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates
Foundation and the Children’s Investment Fund Foundation (CIFF). Sayana Press
(SP) is an innovative subcutaneous contraceptive. The project facilitates the
introduction of Sayana Press through existing delivery channels in four African
countries – Senegal, Burkina Faso, Niger and Uganda. Research on the new
delivery mode of Sayana Press self-injection in Senegal and Uganda is underway.
A new project will launch in January 2017 to generate evidence and guidance
that decision-makers and implementers in Uganda and beyond can use to advance
self-injection programs. This work will provide insights on how to design and
implement self-injection programs that are cost-efficient but still achieve
client proficiency and satisfaction; reach a range of women and adolescents

across multiple channels. The principal results of this new project will be
optimal self-injection program components that can advance scalable and
replicable self-injection programs in Uganda and elsewhere.
